Ideas for FB posts to gain interaction:
April 10/11 - Divine Mercy Sunday
There is an interesting connection, or even a Divine Coincidence, between the Shroud of Turin and the original Vilnius, Divine Mercy Image.
When the Divine Mercy Image is overlaid on the face of Jesus Christ on the 1966 high-resolution image of the Shroud of Turin, we see a beautiful composite that shows that the features and proportions align. This is as close as we can get to a photograph of the face of Jesus Christ. In the words of St. Thomas of Aquinas. “To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.”
1) pictures of us/others with those lit up crosses (made out of wood, strung with Christmas lights) folks were putting in their yards last year - "show us yours"
2) Tom's story about sharing Silent Witness - "what movie sturck a chord with your soul?" - or just introducing family through Tom's viewpoint
3) Laura - birthday month, lived closest to Dad, I have video/pics of Marshall helping dad get first 3D printer running at dining room table....
